Cheers to a Vermont Mom and Pop Store

Article and photo by Eric H.

Nice to hear that the Comfort Inn in St. Johnsbury, Vt., has asked the family-owned and operated Kerrigan's Market & Deli in West Burke, Vt., to provide catering services to its business meeting members.

The partnership makes perfect sense. We have stayed at the 107-room Comfort Inn in St. Johnsbury and regard it as the best-run chain we have stayed at, anywhere (on-the-ball management staff, great indoor pool, spotless rooms, beautiful landscaping, and ideal location to the scenic Northeast Kingdom). We have eaten at Kerrigan's Market and Deli, enjoying the made-from-scratch food that features breakfast selections, subs, salads, wraps, and pizza. The pulled pork is to die for, prepared daily for several hours with an incredible homemade marinade sauce. The steak and cheese brings little bit of "Philly" to the Northeast Kingdom in Vermont.

To owners Dave and Judi Kerrigan and their family that works at the store, we say congratulations on the hard work and sticking with the hard-fought journey that brought you to your successful destination today. As Judi aptly says, " Goes to show you that good food has no bounds."

Hard work has no bounds, either, thus proving that Mom and Pop stores can indeed prosper in a rapidly growing superstore world. Kudos to Dave and Judi and family!
